i am very excited as my husband and i finally decided to build a little pottery studio in our basement.
i have been looking at lots of wheels and i'm hesitating between a Shimpo VL Whisper, a S-100 Soldner and a P-100 Soldner.
i throw small pieces mostly under 5lbs, and i like to make dainty little pieces so good pedal control for precision is key.
that being said, i am also a pretty messy potter because i use quiet a bit of water so the splash pan is important to me.
i also like to have enough space on the wheel to display my water bucket and all my tools... and it looks like the S-100 Soldner doesn't have as much space as the Shimpo and of course not nearly as much space as the P-100.
i have been looking all over the internet and still haven't found a picture of the P-100 (or P-200) Soldner with a splash pan (NOT with a splash pan and trim pan together).
i would LOVE to see a picture of it... if anyone would like to email me a picture, my email is email@example.com
i would be so grateful!!
i read that if you use the S-100 you can use a Brent splash pan and these are pretty big... but some people say that it doesn't fit perfect and makes some noise??
i am driving myself crazy looking at all the different websites and am hoping you guys can help me clarify the situation and finally pick a wheel
thank you so much in adance!!
